Personal Style Outfit-The Year of Emerald

Pantone, the arbiter of color trends, crowned Emerald Green the 2013 color of the year. Expect bright shades of dark green to trickle into every faucet of our spring and fall wardrobes, flooding the retail market and drowning fashionistas' style palettes with seas of color #17-5641 as far as the eye can see. I've always liked the color green-partly because it's underused and partly because its color connotations command great variance. 

Green is the color of money. One is green with envy, or can be a green-eyed monster. Green is novice, sophomoric, wet behind the ears. Green is eco-friendly. Green is harmonious. Green is slimy. It's funny how a one-dimensional splat of color can fall into association with such multi-layered ideas and meanings. For me, emerald green emits beauty, glamour, lustre, and a sense of refined opulence. It's also my Mom's birthstone which ups its precious factor by like a hundred.

So this year, while everyone else wears the color of the year, I'll be wearing my Mom's color...which never goes out of style.

  15. Beautiful photos! Love the floral print on the skirt and the touch of emerald in the shoes. Emerald is my birthstone, so I'm hoping to embody that and adopt an appropriately opulent vibe :)
